After Ikkyu And Other Poems
A spirited collection of poems inspired by the Zen practice of one of America's most celebrated authors, Jim Harrison, a New York Times best-selling author.
Jim Harrison's popular novels represent only part of his literary output—he has also been widely acclaimed for the "renegade genius" of his powerful, expressive verse, collected in several books such as Dead Man's Float (Copper Canyon Press, 2016).
His ninth book of poetry, After Ikkyu is Harrison's first collection that is directly inspired by his Zen practice. The poems included here are thought-provoking and full of wisdom, intelligence, and passion—spirited in Harrison's unique writing style.
JIM HARRISON (1937-2016), celebrated American writer, authored numerous books of nonfiction, poetry, and novels such as Legends of the Fall, A Really Big Lunch, In Search of Small Gods, and Brown Dog.
